Fitchburg line service alert: Suspension of weekend service


Service Alert — No Weekend Service on Fitchburg Main Line

April 25 through November 22, 2015

Construction of major improvements on the Fitchburg Main Line will continue through the 2015 construction season.

This third year of the Commuter Rail Improvement Project will continue improvements to track, signal, bridges and stations to reduce trip times and increase service reliability on the line.

To facilitate the efficient completion of this work, weekend service will again be suspended on the Fitchburg Main Line beginning April 25 through Nov. 22, 2015. Substitute busing will not be provided.

Normal Weekend (Sunday) service will operate on Memorial Day, Fourth of July, Labor Day and Thanksgiving weekends.

Prior to the extended weekend shutdown program for 2015, there will be two weekends where bus service between Littleton Station and Concord Station will be employed on the line to allow for Track and Signal improvements to support the upcoming bridge and track work schedule for 2015.

Busing between Littleton Station and Concord Station will support existing weekend service on the weekends of March 28-29 and April 11-12, 2015.
